Some people actually asked me if I was serious about taking a prenatal course, just wanted to share my opinion on this topic, please feel free to comment :)
My 9 month old Emma has really sensitive skin and had consistent diaper rashes since birth. I have tried using many different products, and they usually have taken several days for the rash to go away. Yesterday I tried this diaper rash cream that I had found at the Baby show, and honestly, her diaper rash went away within a day! I am so amazed that I just wanted to share this product and this amazing story behind the lady who had invented it. http://www.startwithmom.com/article-baby-butz-cream
I posted a new discussion. Please read ladies & give your much appreciated advice! Thank you : )
Thank you Mel! Yes just using water is free & wonderful for sensitive skin! There are cloth wipe solutions that add lavendar oil or tree oil & maybe baby wash (scented or unsecented), which I can try but nothing beats free water : ) I'll just have to wait & see how sensitive the baby's skin is. If I used just water I wouldn't have to worry about washing them seperate from the diapers, because I read if you use oil in the wipe solution you should wash them seperate (but than I think I've heard of people not seperating them & it was fine-plus certain wipe solutions you can purchase might be safe to wash with diapers). That maybe another reason why to just use water, no worries about washing wipes with diapers which saves you a load of laundry, & just saves you more money in the end. So we'll see.....
I made my wipes and after several washes they became more absorband and worked great.
I just put water in a bottle for solution. My kids are sensitive to scents and soaps and it is free.
Great, thank you! I'm excited about trying it. I think it'll work for us. It'll be another way to save money & be good to the environment : )
I bought Cotton Babies wipes because they were the cheapest. I bought 2 packages and haven't run out between washes yet. They're just made of flannel, so if you're crafty I'm sure it would be cheaper and you could make cute ones yourself if you have a serger. Really, that's all they are. I got a box of Knickernappies Baby Bum Drops before my daughter was born, she's 10 1/2 months old and I haven't run out yet. I fill up a cheap spray bottle with the solution (1 1/2 cubes makes 1 1/2 cups, which fills my 12 oz bottle and lasts a couple weeks or so). I spray the wipe until its damp, or if her bum has residual poopy odor I spray her bum directly to wash it better. Works awesome for us!
Ok ladies so I think I'm changing my mind & I am going to give Cloth Wipes a try too!! : ) I'm excited! How have they worked for you & what are the best ones you've purchased & used?? And any wipe solution recipes or what you use exactly? Thanks for any advice : )
Mel-Thank you it was! I do think they are an easy & affordable investment, but you do wonder if they would last for another child? So I have thought about perhaps still getting a few from my favorite brands I've come accross that were more expensive, but it's just hard to make those purchases knowing you can get aoem for $4-6!! lol Oh well, I'm sure it's like you get what you pay for kind of thing. That even though they may hold their own & do well and have really cute prints, they may not necessarily last as long & could possibly have more problems with the material of the diaper falling apart. Idk. I may get my bulk from Sunbabies for example b/c I get way more for my money, but might possibly invest in some CBs, BBs, or Oh Katys becuase I do like them. Oh & I came across thelittebeeco. diapers, while they are expensive they are cute & its for a good cause (for every diaper purchased they donate 1 to needy children throughout the world such as in Haiti or in Africa for example. I would like to support a cause like that. GreenBees also donates 1 diaper to a needy child in their community for every 10 purchased, another good cause. Has anyone used their diapers-from the Little Bee Co.?? Just wondering your thoughts on them. Thanks!
